Washington Island will ask voters to approve a $595,500 revenue-limit override for the 2019-20 school year and $635,000 for the 2020-21 school year. Sturgeon Bay’s three-year, non-recurring referendum seeks overrides of $2.9 million for the 2019-20 school year, $3.2 million for 2020-21 and $3.6 million for 2021-22.
